As the new year approaches I am reminded that we don't need a new year to make big changes in our lives; we have the power to become whoever we want to be instantly, at any time. We create ourselves with each new thought. All it takes to reach a goal is to decide it's already yours, then let the flow of life take over.
Inspired by conversations in the School of Life Design Facebook group, I created a simple tool to guide the coming year. The Fresh Start Magician's Tool is a simple exercise to focus your energy and can be used any time you want to begin anew.
How it works
The Fresh Start Magician's Tool is a 1 page PDF that first helps you release unwanted thought patterns, habits or circumstances. List three things to leave in the past, then cut the section off and burn it, flush it, crumple it or otherwise destroy it. Next, set a single intention to guide your future actions. In the following field, decide where you want to channel your creative flow. Everyone has an unlimited source of creative energy, so choose a place to focus it and watch as your project appears to complete itself. Finally, pick a power word. This single word should resonate deeply with you and help you remember what is most important in your life.
This tool is designed to be used as often as you wish, but has particular power on New Year's Eve because of the ingrained cultural significance of the day. Fill one out tomorrow, on your birthday, or at the beginning of every week. Use it to refine your vision and desires and let the universe take care of the rest.
